Cuba Gooding Jr
Actor, Lightning Jack (1993)
As the black mute, Cuba Gooding Jr rolls his eyes and overacts to an extent unseen since the heyday of Al Jolson. He mimes so vigorously that you half-expect him to demonstrate walking into a gale or being trapped behind invisible glass.
(Chris Tookey, Daily Mail)
Actor, Pearl Harbor, 2001
Cuba Gooding Jr, playing the African-American fighting man forced through prejudice to be a cook, is so camp he could be in Village People.
(Peter Bradshaw, Guardian)
Actor, Boat Trip (2002)
Cuba Gooding Jr. achieved fame by shouting “Show me the money”. Obviously he was not acting.
(Tom Long, Detroit News)
Actor, The Fighting Temptations (2003)
Gooding is off key and mugs and plops like a second-rate sitcom actor.
(Kim Morgan, Portland Oregonian)
